T.J. Lang, Josh Sitton look good to go

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Unlike last week, when it was far from a sure thing that starting guards T.J. Lang and Josh Sitton would play, the Green Bay Packers starting guard duo looks good to go for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Both were listed as probable on Friday's injury report.

Last week, they were listed as questionable but still played against the Bears despite an ankle injury for Lang and a toe injury for Sitton that both date to the Oct. 26 game against the New Orleans Saints and kept them out of practice most of last week.

"T.J. and Josh had a good day yesterday," coach Mike McCarthy said Friday. "[They are] going through the rehab today and just doing all the light work."

McCarthy said they would do "probably next to nothing" on Saturday, when the Packers hold their final workout of the week under their new practice schedule.

The Packers listed just four players on their injury report this week. Last year at this time, they had 11 players listed on their injury report heading into their Week 11 game against the New York Giants.

Still, McCarthy wasn't ready to credit his new practice schedule, in which the team does not practice on Fridays anymore but holds a short practice the day before the game, for the reduction in injuries.

"Let's talk about that after the season because I don't want to jinx it," McCarthy said. "The numbers are good."

Here's the full injury report:
